Matt & Colleen Chose A Great Day to Get Married

Thursday, July 14, 2011
As you may have seen on recent posts, or perhaps you just know, I really, really love my birthday.  Colleen and Matt got married on my birthday.  July 9th, 2011. What a great day.  I have to say I felt pretty loved- the bridal party must have had a little bridal birdie tell them it was my birthday, because they all told me, "Happy Birthday!" all day long.   Thanks!

Anyway, enough about me.  It was their wedding day!  Here are a handful of photos to highlight their day.

 Casey assisted on this one.  Love this ring shot she got! The greens and wood really fit the outdoorsy-feel of Colleen & Matt.

 I love this sweet picture of the parents coming back down the aisle!

 Casey captured this romantic moment. Isn't this sweet?

I am just loving this light fixture that is in the lobby at the Ameristar hotel as a backdrop.  We stopped there for some photos to get out of the heat and that lobby has so many cool lights and textures.
 As always the toasts were full of laughter and expression, and I usually like to pull a few out to share from the best man or maid of honor.  But this time I went with Colleen's dad.  His face was so full of affection and pride for his daughter. I just loved it!
 This wedding had a lot of special dances and events that I'd never seen before - like this one- called Chivalry, I think.  The kids all hit pots and pans and collected change from the bride and groom.  It is always neat to see traditions that each family has.

 Flash mob!!
Congratulations to Matt & Colleen!
